Smart Bandages Send Healing Data in Real Time

Smart Bandages Send Healing Data in Real Time
Smart bandages able to communicate health data in real time could help speed wound healing and reduce doctor visits.

The 3D-printed bandages, in development by a group led by the Swansea University's Institute of Life Science, are equipped with tiny sensors that continuously monitor the status of the wound. The collected information is then transmitted to the doctor in real time, via 5G wireless, allowing the physician and patient to track healing and customize treatment, if necessary.
